Industrial water treatment and the way forward

by DrPrem Jagyasi

In this day and age of rapid exponential technological advancement and overpopulation, there is a serious need for sustainable and environmentally optimal practices and systems. Among the many new systems and processes being adopted in all areas of industry and economy, are those involving commercial and industrial water treatment.

The need for large-scale production of just about everything does not look like it will dwindle any time soon. Thus there is only a growing requirement for environmentally friendly, safe, and efficient technology and water treatment for the use of major industries. This is why new processed water treatment technologies have been developed and installed all over the world.

A Pressing Need

Water is truly the essence of life, and this statement has come to take on a new meaning in the realm of industrial systems. Data centers, refineries, power plants, and other large industries that do not have top notch cooling tower water treatment systems are risking more than just their equipment. Poor systems can cause corrosion that damages equipment and encourages scaling that can reduce efficiency and decrease energy conservation. It can also facilitate the growth of microbes that can lead to serious, deadly diseases.

Now, more than ever, we are dealing with energy crises across the planet, the prevalence of manmade environmental threats in our history, and worsening strains of microbial life forms. There has never been a more pressing need for adapting cooling tower chemical treatment and other industrial systems. The benefits of adopting these new systems and processes are frightening.

Chemical-free dynamic equilibrium

In order to truly have a high-functioning, efficient, and optimal system, nothing is more vital than data gathering and analysis. New water treatment technology, such as Dynamic Water’s UET, now combats all the problems of scale, microbiological activity, corrosion, and contamination with a constant automated monitoring. Rather than using chemicals, natural processes can be used in a controlled environment to eliminate problems of scale.

The UET monitoring system allows pH balance to be measured every few milliseconds to recognize any deviation from equilibrium. Any imbalances that may be observed can immediately be corrected through electrolysis using a DC current. Over forty parameters are analyzed to make the necessary adjustments, but the energy required for this system is only a small percentage of previously developed systems. Maintaining the balance this way prevents the damages of scale and its insular properties, and it prevents the environmental conditions that cause corrosion.

This process also removes the need for added chemicals due to the natural reactions that occur with electrolysis. The reactor is able to form chlorine naturally due to the chloride ions available after the electrolysis reactions in its chambers. This biocide disinfects the process water in the system, preventing the spread of microbes that cause serious diseases like Legionnaires’.

Scale and heavy metal build up can also be controlled and cleaned easily every few months as the reactor collects any excess before flushing water into the basin of the cooling tower. The overall process cuts down scale and improves the performance of your systems, resulting in energy savings of nearly 30 percent or more. Water savings can improve to up to 80 percent as well.

These new technological advances are some of the greenest industrial developments in recent times. As more and more companies integrate this technology, the positive implications for economy, industry, and environment are boundless.
